NIGHT OF 1000 STEVIES – the largest and most beloved STEVIE NICKS fan event in the world – returns for its 31st annual edition on May 6. NIGHT OF 1000 STEVIES 31: ANGEL is produced by show founders CHI CHI VALENTI and JOHNNY DYNELL and their creative krewe at THE JACKIE FACTORY. The entire 1000 STEVIES family is overjoyed to return to our longtime Union Square venue IRVING PLAZA for the first time since 2019.
This year’s theme pays homage to the many angels in Stevie’s songs and artwork, including the iconic Fleetwood Mac title song “Angel”, in her songs Sleeping Angel, Street Angel and many more. A tribute segment will note the passing of her longtime bandmate and stage angel CHRISTINE MCVIE.
Our bill is now complete and studded with Stevie Stars. They include audience favorites like LANE MOORE and IT WAS ROMANCE, BRIDGET BARKAN, MARYANNE PICCOLO and MIKE GREKO, VANGELINE THEATER and KITTEN ‘N LOU (New Orleans), plus Welsh born electronic singer BRIGHT LIGHT BRIGHT LIGHT, Celtic harpist MIA THEODORATUS, jazz/blues/EDM crooner JEFF STEPHAN (Chicago) and local hard rockers HONEY TRAP.
The NOTS 31 debut performers include six minutes that were four years in the making: VIKKI MARTIN of Ireland’s STANDBACK THE STEVIE NICKS EXPERIENCE was booked back in late 2019 for the 30th anniversary, then had to cancel due to covid. Other 2023 debuts begin with NIKI LUPARELLI, a Boston based Stevie singer who has produced Nicks tributes combining music and burlesque over the past five years, most notably at a Boston Planetarium. Local drag dance artiste, choreographer and bombshell BRIE BORDEAUX will craft a production number sure to be an Act Three highlight. Bushwick-based singer/song and musical theater writer FRED SAUTER will come up from the Enchanted audience to debut this year – he’s a longtime NOTS attendee and covid-era Facebook Live Stevie tribute artist. And finally, CAMERON NICO is a New York City bred, Los Angeles based drag-entertaining singer, songwriter, actor and producer. Cameron was a fixture at NYC’s LUCKY CHENGS and LIPS before founding electronic rock band RED SHE SAID in 2012.
DJ SAMMY JO will keep the Stevie/Fleetwood dancefloor twirling madly between and after the three performance sets. “Enchantresses of Ceremony” Valenti, PAUL ALEXANDER, ABBY EHMANN and HEATHER LITTEER will keep the white-winged talent flowing. As always, tambourines will be tossed to our Stevie Styled audience and the show will close with the now-mythic Battle of 1000 Stevies.
